Are you looking for a new challenge? Would you like to be a part of a company that is experiencing extensive international growth? Our client is a global engineering business supplying bespoke engineered products and engineered solutions to some of the largest manufacturing companies and defence contractors worldwide.

Our Client:

With a UK based Head Office, they have been trading for over 120 years and have sites worldwide. The company focuses on industrial rotating equipment and supply into every major sector. The company is going through sustained growth and offers an excellent career opportunity to help drive this organic growth across the world.

Role:

Acting under the direction of the Engineering Manager, this is a mechanical design role within the Engineering team, focused on delivering design work on key projects and orders.

The role primarily focuses on the concept and detailed mechanical design of rotating components and assemblies. Where necessary, this will also include the specification and design of other supporting systems and equipment such as couplings, instrumentation and lubrication packages. The role requires the individual to make design calculations and decisions to meet customer requirements, and to generate the necessary CAD models, drawings, bills of material and other technical data for both customers and internal production needs.

Liaison with other engineering team members and individuals in other functions is an integral part of the role.

You will be responsible for:

* Reviewing the documentation for each equipment order (e.g. customer specifications and industry standards) and translating this into specific order requirements.

* Mechanical design of components, including any required design calculations.

* Design and/or specification of all package requirements (e.g. bearings, instrumentation, lubrication systems).

* Production of detailed design component and assembly drawings for the entire order using 3D CAD tools, plus associated general arrangements, cross-sections, installation manuals and other drawings that may be required.

* Production of material masters and bills of material for the entire order.

* Support to operations in the execution of the design requirements, including procurement activities, shop-floor manufacture and test.

Role Requirements:

* Degree level qualification in Mechanical Engineering, although HNC/HND plus a proven track record/experience in mechanical engineering will be considered.

* Some working knowledge/experience of rotating equipment design e.g. shaft and bearing design, torque calculations.

* Some working knowledge of ancillaries such as couplings, instrumentation, lubrication systems.

* Some working knowledge of common manufacturing techniques e.g. machining and fabrication of components.

* Some working knowledge of common materials selection requirements

* Significant experience in 2D and 3D CAD.

Preferred, (but not essential) Requirements:

* Engineering knowledge of, for example, gear rating techniques, shaft and coupling design, lubrication systems, test rig design, bolted joints/keys/fits, design for fabrication.

* Familiarity with using SAP to generate material master and bills of material.

This role will offer a range of opportunities for European travel along with a competitive salary and benefits package. If you fit the criteria and are interested in applying for this position then please click apply
